Pinisi Cafe & Bakery

While walking towards the Lower East Side to do a little shopping, my friend LoFo and I stumbled upon this bakery!  I just couldn't resist that neon sign.

We stopped in to see what their gluten free options were.  They didn't have much on the menu, but they did offer up gluten free brownies.  How could I say no?  It was my birthmonth after all.

Unfortunately... it wasn't very good.  I took a few bites and tossed it soon after.  It didn't have great chocolate flavor, was pretty crumbly and altogether dry.  I would go back to Pinisi to see if they have any other good gluten free treats.  I'm always willing to give it another go!  Despite not being the best gluten free brownie I've had, I liked the atmosphere of Pinisi.  It seems like a great place to spend a Sunday with a large cup of coffee or tea and a good book.

Do you love it or do you love it?
